HOBBY PROTECTION LAW #95-167, BECOMES LAW OF THE LAND
On Thursday, November 29, 1973 President Nixon signed the bill whioh so many of you helped
move through the Congress, with your letters and telegrams to your lawmakers. See addition-
al information and the complete bill on another page of this issue
APIC MEMBERS ASKED TO BECOME INVOLVED WITH LOCAL BICENTENNIAL ACTIVITIE S.
In many areas of the country the plans for local Bicentennial activities have been slow in
getting underway. I want to urge each of you to personally oontact your state and looal
commissions, offering your services. Offering your collection for display would be a good
promotion effort for the APIC and would give prestige to you in your own area. If there is
no looal commission, perhaps you can help organise one Any suggestions regarding
a speoial bicentennial project would be appreciated. Our president, Larry Krug, has urged
us to attempt a projeot of some magna tude. Perhaps a written projeot, audio-visual, or the
purchase of some significant political shrine, building, or artifact to be put on display,
could be undertaken. Please let me have your ideas on what we can do I know of
no other group that has as much to offer to the 1976 Bicentennial celebration. Let us make
maximum use of our collections and ideas.
John F. Rookett, MD - Chairman Bicentennial Comm.
(THE NEXT ISSUE OF THE KEYNOTER WILL FEATURE THE GREENBACK A PEOPLES PARTY - WHAT DO YOU HAVE?
Larry L. Krug, #714.
The Hobby Protection Act... a proposed revision of the APIC Code of Ethics...
incorporation of APIC... plans for the upcoming San Diego convention. .. it is hard to
find a place to start in the currently busy days of APIC.
In the concluding weeks of November, while Washington continued to make daily
news of significance in a myriad of sweeping headlines, somehow, someway, the Senate
found time to pass S.1880 in it's original form and layed it on the President's desk
for his signature. And on Thursday night, November 29, over the signature of Richard
M. Nixon, the Hobby Protection Act became a law. I'm proud of APIC's role in making
the Hobby Protection Act become public law, #93-167. Although several organizations
also supported the bill and actively promoted it, none can claim the credit due the
APIC in making the Hobby Protection Act become a reality. I firmly believe that if it
wasn't for the strong leadership taken by the APIC Legislative Committee, and the
ground swell of support and initiative picked up by the membership in contacting their
congressional leaders, the Hobby Protection Act would not be. I want to thank Chairman
Robert Fratkin of the Legislative Committee for his continuous efforts on the Washington
scene in pushing H.R.5777 and S.1880. And I know Bob joins me in thanking the hundreds
of APIC members who wrote and called their Representatives and Senators in support of
the bills. With the Hobby Protection Act, APIC has taken another step forward in pro-
moting member protection and safeguarding our hobby. In the days ahead, I plan to work
with the APIC Legislative Committee and the Legal Advisory Council in establishing a
national network of professionals from the field of law, selected from our membership,
to help us make the new law a working tool of the organization. The APIC will file
injunctions against any party that appears to be in violation of the Act, and there-
fore detrimental to the members of our organization.
I'm pleased that the news of the passage of Hobby Protection Act can be carried
simultaneously with the call for membership approval of a proposed revision of the APIC
Code of Ethics. Please take time to read the revision and compare it with the exis-
ting code as printed in the 1973 Member Roster. This revision, too, is for increased
member protection and covers many of the problem areas that currently exist in the hobby.
With passage of the new code, the APIC will have the necessary tools of enforcement to
cope with the problems that are concerns to all of us, old and new members alike. The
revision has resulted in a strong code. And you have the pledge of this administration
that the new code will be enforced. If for any reason a member feels he cannot live
within the limitations of the new code, this is dues renewal time... an excellent time
to get out.
Although a new APIC Code of Ethics would help greatly in policing the hobby inter-
nally, the conduct of non-APIC members in our field of collecting, can still plague the
hobby. Key concern in this group is the actual button manufacturer. Only the collec-
tive efforts of the entire APIC membership working together can combat the proliferation
of campaign button manufacture in 1976. This is one of the last hurdles — the largest
hurdle and the toughest hurdle — in APIC's race to regain for the hobby the dignity and
APIC KEYNOTER - Page 3 - WINTER 1973
significance that rightly accompanies a hobby such as ours, built on historic principle
devoted to the preservation of political Americana. We have two years before the next
presidential campaign. With several long time projects coming to completion, the ener-
gies of APIC will now, to a large extent, be turned to this final hurdle. The sugges-
tions and support of the membership are welcomed and needed.
Lynn B. Griffith, Chairman of the APIC Legal Advisory Council, has prepared the
application for Incorporation of the APIC, in the State of Ohio, and has agreed to
serve as statutory agent for the Corporation. On behalf of the membership, I would
like to thank Judge Griffith for the considerable time he has spent on our behalf. A
ballot has been provided for your vote and your affirmative action will be appreciated.
Although the 1974 APIC Convention Co-Chairmen have an article in another section
of this KEYNOTER, I too, want to stress the need to make early attendance plans and to
return the enclosed card indicating plans for attending. As you will note, there are
area liason committee members spread geographically throughout the country. Please
feel free to contact your nearest committeeman if you have questions. Chairmen Fouquet,
Machander, and McGee are lining up a program that promises to make this one of the best
APIC conventions ever held -- one you cannot afford to miss.
The call for proposals to host the 1976 National APIC Convention, as announced in
the Autumn KEYNOTER, has resulted in no proposals from Area #1 being submitted at dead-
ine time. Therefore, the Executive Board will determine the site of the convention at
their next meeting as called for in the Constitution. Any chapter or group of APIC
members anywhere in the country desiring to host the 1976 convention are urged to contact
the President within the next few weeks so that their interest might be shared with the
Executive Board in making their decision.
I'm happy to see several APIC chapters appointing committees and becoming active
in their local planning for the bicentennial. Either as a group, or individually, all
APIC members are encouraged to work with their local bicentennial committees in promo-
ting our particular area of American history. If you have already become involved, or
plan to do so, please drop a line to Dr. Jack Rockett, chairman of the APIC Bicentennial
Committee and let him know what you are doing.
As 1973 draws to a close and we look toward a new year, the Krug family wishes all
APIC members and their families a good holiday season and a healthy, abundant 1974.
APIC PLANS TO INCORPORATE
The incorporation of the American Political Items Collectors will be completed
before the end of the year. The Articles of Incorporation are being filed in the
State of Ohio setting out the same purposes as the organization has provided for in
its constitution and the three incorporators have provided a code of regulations iden-
tical to the constitution of the American Political Items Collectors, save and except
the name Directors is changed to Trustees to conform to Ohio law.
The same Trustees to be elected to serve as officers of the corporation, as served
the club. This will provide limited liability to the officers and directors and pro-
vide additional opportunities for a more businesslike processing of the organization's
affairs. This action has been approved by the APIC Executive Board and a ballot for
your vote has been included with this issue of the KEYNOTER. Voting deadline is
January 20, 1974.

1974 APIC CONVENTION NEWS AND SURVEY
Enclosed with this KEYNOTER are two important items related to APIC's 1974
National Convention in San Diego, August 15-17 — a color brochure from the Hotel
del Coronado (the convention site), and an attendance survey card for all APIC
Your convention committee needs this preliminary attendance information in order
to assure holding the proper number of hotel rooms for APIC members, since August hotel
space in California is limited, if not reserved well in advance. Moreover, with the
"energy crisis" much in the news today, advance planning becomes even more important.
Those responding now will receive first space preference, but you are not bound by
this reservation, if it later should prove impossible for you to attend. The antici-
pated APIC convention room rates are $20 single/ $25 double. We'll great ly appreciate
your returning the survey card to us by January 20 .
The Committee is already at work planning a number of special events to make this
convention a memorable one. We are exploring the possibility of group or charter air
rates with several airlines, as well as special bus tours in the San Diego area for
members and families. More information will be coming in future KEYNOTERS and through
your local APIC chapters.
A major convention feature will be a large exhibit area. If you have an in-depth
display of some specialty of Political Americana which you would like to exhibit, you
are urged to contact Jim Weling, 857 E. Mountain St., Glendale California 91207.
Finally, we have established an Advance Committee to provide a direct liaison to
APIC members in all parts of the country on advance information concerning the Conven-
tion. If you have questions, you may wish to contact one of the following members of

THE ELECTION OF 1972
by Jon D. Curtis, #1438.
The election of 1972 is much too recent to totally evaluate its consequences. It
will be a fascinating election for historians of the future to write about as there
are so many unique events both prior to and past election.
The Democratic Party pressured Senator Thomas Eagleton to withdraw from their
ticket as Vice Presidential nominee and replaced him with R. Sargent Shriver. The
Republican Party has had its "Watergate" and Vice Presidential problems. On October 10,
1973, Spiro T. Agnew became the second Vice President in our history to resign.
Previously, John C. Calhoun resigned on December 28, 1832, just a few months before his
term expired, to take a seat in the Seante. President Nixon is the first chief execu-
tive to make use of the 25th Amendment, which allows him to appoint a Vice President.
He chose Gerald L. Ford of Michigan, who will be, if confirmed, the second Vice
President to have had a name change. He was born Leslie King, but his name was changed
when he was adopted by his stepfather. Henry Wilson, Grant's second term Vice Presi-
dent, was born Jeremiah Colbaith, so the elections 100 years apart give us this
Since it will be a few years before an accurate assessment can be made of the
election, we can best look at the statistics of the election. The returns available
in most sources are inaccurate. Therefore, to get true figures I contacted each
state for their certified returns. The total vote for each candidate is as follows:
Richard Nixon-Spiro Agnew
George McGovern-R. Sargent Shriver Dem.& Liberal
John Schmitz-Thomas Anderson
1 Linda Jenne ss-Andrew Pulley
Evelyn Reed-Clifton DeBerry
Unpledged S. W. Electors
Total Socialist Workers
Benjamin Spock- Julius Hobson
Louis Fisher-Genevieve Gunderson
Gus Hall-Jarvis Tyner
E. Harold Munn-Mar shall Uncapher
John Hospers-Theodora Nathan
John Mahalchik-Irving Homer
Edward A. Wallace-Robert B. Mess
Gabriel Green-Daniel Fry
All 3 Tickets
The totals shown above include both regular and write-in votes.
The above list contains one ticket not covered in the APIC "1972 - Parties on
the Ballot" project. Edward A. Wallace and Robert B. Mess were members of the Ohio
American Party. This splinter group did not accept the ticket of Schmitz-Anderson
and ran in opposition. The 460 votes they received were all write-ins in Ohio.
Nixon's landslide was so great that he received over 60% of the vote in 31
states, totalling 253 electoral votes in these states alone. His highest percentage
was in Mississippi where he received 78.20% to McGovern's 19.63%. Senator McGovern
carried only Massachusetts, where he received 54.20%, and the District of Columbia,
where he received 78.10% of the vote.
APIC KEYNOTER - Page 7 - WINTER 1973
Thirty states give their voters the opportunity to cast write-in votes. However,
a mere eight states count and total these votes in their certified reports. A full
count is done by Alabama, Connecticut, Georgia, Maine, and Rhode Island. A partial
count is done by California, Massachusetts, and New York. In addition to the votes
for candidates appearing in the chart, an additional 39,826 votes were cast in the
country. Of those states that report write-ins, the most votes were cast for
George C. Wallace with a total of 1,878. His total and the actual total vote for all
third parties is probably higher, but twenty-two states don't count or don't report
In contacting the various states, a couple of ridiculous laws were uncovered.
One state reported they do not total write-ins unless the candidate received at
least 1% of the vote. Another state said they do not total the write-ins unless the
candidate wins. In both cases, how would one know whether a candidate received 1%
or won unless the votes were counted?
1972 was almost the exact opposite of 1968 — whereas the Nixon-Agnew ticket won
a squeaker in 1968, this last year it was a landslide. Nixon received almost 16-1/2
million more votes last year than in 1968. The Democrats received two million less
votes in 1972 than in 1968, even though there were three major candidates in 1968.
Their total was the lowest Democratic vote since Stevenson's second campaign in 1956.
The year 1972 was also a disaster for the American Party as they lost their
ballot position in 18 states, drawing only 11% of their 1968 total of 9,906,000. The
final blow came when John Schmitz resigned from the party to return to the Republican
fold and the rest of the party split into two camps, one led by Tom Anderson and the
other by Richard Kay of Washington.
The People's Party did not do as well as expected. The party was composed of
elements that made up the Peace and Freedom Party and New Party from 1968. These
groups drew 109,000 votes in 1968. Spock was only able to draw 78,889 votes in 1972.
The Socialist Workers Party had its best year in 1972. Their previous record
vote was the 41,300 the Hal stead- Bout el le ticket received in 1968. They more than
doubled that in 1972 with their three tickets receiving a combined total of 95,066
The Socialist Labor Party also improved their vote in 1972 and received the
largest vote ever, 53,815. This was a 2.5% increase over 1968.
The Communist Party also can look back on 1972 as an improvement over 1968. In
1968 their ticket pulled only 1,075 votes as compared to 25,621 last year. This total,
however, is far short of their record total of 103,000 for the 1932 ticket of Foster
The Prohibition Party celebrated its 100th anniversary in the elections of 1972,
but its 13,497 total was its worst showing since 1880, when the Dow-Thompson ticket
drew 10,366 votes. They did do better in the four states where they were on the
ballot than the 1968 ticket had done in those states.
Finally, even the Universal Party did better in 1972. They received only 19
votes in 1964; upped this to 142 in 1968 and received 220 votes this year.
The past election was also interesting regarding the electoral vote totals.
The Nixon-Agnew ticket received 520 electoral votes to 17 for McGovern-Shriver. The
Libertarian Party candidates of Hospers-Nathan received one electoral vote, cast by
a renegade Republican elector from Virginia named MacBride. The vote for Mrs. Theodora
Nathan for Vice President was the first electoral vote ever cast for a woman. The
Nixon-Agnew total of 520 electoral votes represents the highest total ever received
with the exception of the 523 won by Roosevelt and Garner in 1936.
The 17 votes received by McGovern and Shriver was the lowest total with the
exception of 1804, 1820 and 1936. In 1804 the Federalist candidates Charles C.
Pinckney and Rufus King received only 14 votes. In 1820 James Monroe received 231
of the 232 electoral votes— the one other vote was cast for John Quincy Adams.
Electoral votes at that time did not result from carrying a state's popular votes, as
popular voting did not come into use until 1824. The McGovern total of 17 is the
lowest total except for the 8 electoral votes won by Landon and Knox in 1936. Alf
Landon carried only two states, Maine and Vermont. McGovern carried only one state
(Massachusetts) and the District of Columbia. No candidate for President had ever
been held to winning only one state.

Recalling the Other Gerald L. Ford for Vice President Boon
by U. T. Chick Harris, #139
The recent events of the resignation of our country's Vice President, the first
use of the Twenty-Fifth Amendment, and the nomination of Gerald L. Ford of Michigan
to fill the vacancy brings to mind the 1960 Republican Convention in Chicago. About
twenty collectors had assembled in Chicago, some in an official capacity, but most in
an unofficial capacity— to be a part of the Convention excitement and to help reorganize
the APIC, which had been disbanded in May.
The Loop hotels were filled with the various States' Delegates and the Conrad
Hilton on Michigan Avenue was the "official" headquarters. The large mezzanine of the
Hilton was Nixon headquarters while across the street Nelson Rockefeller, the only
real opposition, held forth on the mezzanine of the Blacks tone Hotel. Goldwater
supporters had an upper floor suite in the Hilton. These were the "in" places and an
appearance by the candidates could touch off a small tempest. There were plenty of
free Nixon items — literature, Dick & Pat buttons, clickers, small pennants, America
needs Nixon buttons, etc., plus plenty of snacks and punch. Rocky supporters passed
out the orange and blue buttons and tabs, with snacks not so plentiful, and at Goldwater
headquarters there were some buttons.
The lower level, the Exposition Hall of the Hilton, was filled with hundreds of
booths set up by manufacturers, jobbers and distributors of campaign material so the
various delegates could purchase, for later delivery, the designs and varieties of
material they would use in their local headquarters. They were all official samples
which were chiefly Nixon items as he seemed like a sure bet, but some Rocky s were also
available. Limited quantities of the buttons, jewelry and some 3-D items were sold —
most buttons were 10c to 25c, with three-inch buttons going for 50c and a few at a
dollar. It was most difficult to decide what you wanted for your collection, for you
probably didn't want and couldn't afford them all. The ones you didn't buy because
they weren't so nice were probably the ones you should have bought, for some samples
just never got into production and today are those most desired. It was great fun and
many rounds were made of this, the most elaborate and largest such bourse any collector
had seen to that time or since. Several weeks earlier, at the Democratic Convention
in Los Angeles, nothing like this had been available.
Richard Nixon, the Vice President, was the heavy favorite, especially with the
"old guard" conservatives, and Nelson Rockefeller was the champion of the liberal wing.
Rockefeller was determined that the party should move from the far right and was ready
to take his fight for a more liberal platform to the Convention floor. While the
Platform Committee was whipping a conservative platform into shape, Rockefeller asked
Nixon to meet him in his New York apartment and Nixon agreed. From this meeting,
which Goldwater called a capitulation, came the fourteen point agreement which called
for, among other points— greater military spending and a stronger stand on civil rights.
The old guard was furious but Nixon finally calmed the storm and the platform was
redrawn. Rocky bowed out of the race and so it was Nixon all the way — the first ballot
vote was 1,321 to 10 for Goldwater.
APIC KEYNOTER - Page 11 - WINTER 1973
The Vice Presidency had been wide open and a lot of Veep fever was prevalent in
the hotels, with several states promoting their favorite sons, Arizona not only had
Goldwater for President material, but was ready with Vice Presidential buttons also.
Walter Judd, the Convention Keynote speaker, had a large old guard following, and
they distributed NIXON AND JUDD, THAT'S THE TICKET buttons. Fred Seaton, Secretary
of the Interior, was prominently mentioned and two types of buttons were circulated —
one was a blue on white litho, FRIEND OF FRED, and the other a dull red on white
celluloid, SEATON FOR VP. The Kentucky and Tennessee delegates championed the
Republican National Committeman, Thurston B. Morton, and had six-inch blue on white
celluloid buttons to prove it. Green on white, three and a half inch celluloids were
available for the Congressman James Byrnes of Wisconsin. Henry Cabot Lodge was
mentioned but there seemed to be almost no organized effort. The Michigan delegation
was singing the praises of a young energetic Congressman, Gerald L. Ford, and handing
out blue on yellow celluloid buttons in the lobby.
jl FOR a
With Nixon totally in command, the behind-the-scenes maneuvering was what counted,
and his choice of Henry Cabot Lodge seemed like a real plus for the ticket. Lodge was
from a politically prominent family and Ike had appointed him as Ambassador to the
United Nations. He was well known and great things were expected, but he did not live
up to expectations, campaigning ineffectively and making statements which hurt the
ticket and possibly cost the Republicans the election.
It seems that Vice Presidential problems have been Richard Nixon's lot-*- let's

Congratulations to Bill Heaney (#3068) on his December 15th trip to the altar
with, in Bill's words, "a real great gal"... Also a tip of the Harrison top hat to
Steve Bakken (#2658) for the illustrated write-up he received recently in the
Aberdeen American News. The article sums up the thinking of many when it quotes
Steve: "When I purchased my first button in 1971, I had no idea my collection would
blossom out like it did or that there were so many items to get"... A Portland news-
paper has run a picture of Steve Bibler (#138) sporting a much sought after 1960 pin
promoting Ford for Vice President.
At Connecticut APIC's summer meeting, the dessert was almost too good to eat.
Rich Maxson (#3072) brought a cake made by talented Donna Belanger which was an
exact replica of a Landon pin — even to the tiny "reproduction" on the curl so we'd
all know it was freshly made.
Edmund B. Sullivan, #264, Curator of the DeWitt Collection at the University of
Hartford, is requesting descriptions of — and black and white glossy photos (actual
size) of political memorabilia not currently listed in "A Century of Campaign Buttons".
The revised edition which is quite an undertaking will include items 1789 through the
1892 campaign. Most lapel items will be pictured and described — ribbons and inaug-
ural badges excepted. Target date for publication is 1976, our bicentennial year.
Our thanks to Carl Weisheimer (#2699) for sending along a list of all 1973 New
York City candidates together with illustrations of all party emblems. Some of the
lesser known parties and their emblems include the following:
Jon D. Curtis, #1438, has been included on several Watergate and impeachment dis-
cussion panels in the Green Bay area. His views have also been written into a feature
story in the October 31 issue of the Brown County (Wisconsin) Chronicle.
The Scott-Fanton Historical Society Museum in Danbury, Connecticut featured an
election memorabilia display drawing heavily from James Dyer's (#854) extensive
collection, A very early wooden voting machine also received much attention.
Let's hear from YOU. It's your page so keep us posted on what you'd like your
fellow members to know. With every wish that 1974 is kind to you and yours...
Good Government Party - City Hall
Integrity Party - Flowering tree
Free Libertarian Party - Empire State building
Safe City Party - A family of four
Experience Party - Downtown buildings
Honest Citizens Party - Scale of justice
Anti-Tri-Boro Party - Bridge over water

Answering Posers Irking Collectors
By Webster Haven, #131 324 Monticello Drive N.; Syracuse, N. Y. 13205
I would like to call your attention to the fact that Marian Ford has resumed her
fine column, "CAN YOU IDENTIFY," but does not appear in this issue due to the few new
questions. During her absence I attempted to assist on questions of this nature, but
now recommend that questions of the identifying of buttons be directed to her much
more capable hands.
From time to time this column receives questions of a local nature. Then all of
our usual reference material is of no avail. We therefore try to select some veteran
APIC member, from that particular area, and ask his or her help. This method has
worked very well, but even though I include a SASE with every question, a few members
have failed to even acknowledge that they received my request. This column is
conducted with the sole purpose of seeking information to aid all members. Please
remember that any information you obtain for this column will help others, just as
information that they obtain may benefit you.
Mr. Richard Wright, President of the Onondaga Historical Association, in Syracuse,
N. Y., reports that he has received a picture of a Walker-Kirkpatrick ballot from our
Editor, Chick Harris, as a result of an item that appeared in this column. Anyone
else having any items relative to the campaign of the American or American National
Party in 1876, kindly contact Mr. Wright or this writer.
In the Autumn 1973 column, we reported a ballot, in Philadelphia, with 149 names
on it, and asked if anyone knew of any that could top this. Richard Dellinger (#2305)
reports that in 1964 the State of Illinois had been ordered by Federal Courts to
redistrict its State Legislature on the basis of the one man/one vote principle. It
failed to do so, and this failure created the necessity of all candidates for House
seats to run at large. This meant that seats had to be filled by vote of all the
voters of the state. Realizing that the party which carried the state would perhaps
win all the seats due to straight ticket voting, the two major parties agreed to each
nominate only 2/3 of the number of candidates necessary, so that there would be a
minority representation of the 1/3 elected - all in the interest of good government.
Special paper ballots were printed for the election of the State Legislature candidates.
(All other offices were placed on the voting machines). The ballot contained 236
names - 118 from each party. You could not vote for more than 177 names or your ballot
would be invalidated. Dick added that he understands that it took considerable time to
count these ballots. Which is no doubt the understatement of the year.
Q. Is it true that the satirical Nixon Money has been confiscated by the Secret Service
and U.S. Treasury Department?
A. I have been informed that the Great American Dream Corp., manufacturer and distribu-
tor of this "funny" money has filed suit in Detroit U. S. District Court for
$250,000.00, who claim the money was confiscated "out of political maliciousness."
Q. Recently I picked up a 3-1/2" celluloid button, green on yellow, "Henry Krajewski
for Councilman." Is this the same Krajewski of Third Party fame?
A. I have not seen that particular button but as the late Henry Krajewski ran for a
number of offices, I would assume that it was the same person.
Q. I recently acquired a colorful piriback plastic shield featuring Eisenhower wearing
a military "overseas" cap, embellished with his five stars as General of the Army.
The pin is a plastic "sandwich," one and one eighth inches wide and one and one
quarter inches deep. Ike is shown in a handsome youthful pose against a sunflower.
A scroll at chin level says "0 K Ike Club" and below that is written "Sunflower
Ordnance Works." What is the significance of this item?
A. One of our veteran APIC members, Justin R. "Andy" Anderson (#243) lives near the
Sunflower Ordnance Works, and happens to own one of the above-described pinbacks of
Ike. He states, "that hardly any body is still around that worked at the plant
in 1952, the year, I'm sure, it was issued. I have a good friend, who retired from
the plant several years ago, working on it, but so far the only thing he has come
up with is that somebody thinks the item was issued by a contracting firm that had
something to do with the building of the plant. If I can produce any reliable
information, it will be forwarded." Thanks, Andy.

As a part of your 1973 APIC dues, we enclose the Brummagem pages which have
appeared in the KEYNOTERS since the feature was begun in 1963 by Wayne G. LaPoe,
the first Chairman of the Ethics Committee. Wayne is the one responsible for making
a household word of the obscure noun, Brummagem, which is defined by Webster as a
showy, but inferior and worthless thing. This term has been applied to all the
fakes, reproductions, and fantasy political items which have plagued our hobby for
Many of the Brummagem items pictured and described have not been a problem
as the publicity given by the APIC has caused many items to be destroyed or kept out
The many flee markets and some unscrupulous antique dealers who handle all sorts
of "new" antiques are our greatest source of problems. Be sure to study these pages,
remembering that in most cases there were and are legitimate items like those which
are Brummagem . It is much easier to identify the reproduction lithographs than the
reproduced celluloids, and you need to know how to tell the real thing from the fake.
When you see a questionable item, tell the dealer you have doubts and ask his source.
On definite fakes, let the dealer know you disapprove and encourage him to remove from
sale alert your fellow collectors of those who do not cooperate. With your help,
the impact of the new Hobby Protection Law and the new APIC Code of Ethics, possibly
the Brummagem which has been a problem will be no more.
COLLECTING STATE AND LOCAL POLITICAL ITEMS
by Ben W. Meek, APIC #1046
A collection of Gubernatorial and Senatorial candidates can be almost as interes-
ting as Presidential items and a large number are available at reasonable prices. For
instance, in Indiana there have been some forty major party candidates for Governor
since 1880, partly because Governors cannot succeed themselves in this state. There
have been about twenty-five candidates for the U.S. Senate since 1914 and about thirty-
two different hopefuls for the House of Representatives since 1880 from the District in
which I live.
Add to these twenty or so Vice President and Presidential hopefuls and it makes
quite a number of collectables from one state alone. Material on some of these people
is quite rare, especially the losers, but this adds to the zest of these collections.
With the great increase in the price of older Presidential items more and more col-
lectors are turning to local items and some dealers are specializing in state and local
One is fortunate when a good public library with collections of local history and
microfilms of local newspapers is available. This helps identify some of the Congression
al hopefuls and the rather obscure individuals who many times were on the ticket of the
party not considered to have a chance of winning.
Of course, if you are very ambitious it is possible to collect candidates from all
fifty States and try collecting all the congressmen from a given session. . .this may be
an interesting challenge.
There are all sorts of items available, such as postcards, ribbons, ballots, etc.
My collection has about 240 Indiana items and it is by no means complete; so this makes
it a fine challenge.

CALIFORNIA CANDIDATES FOR GOVERNOR .
by Marian A. Ford, 120k$ Viewcrest Road, Studio City, California 9160U
We hope this new section on local candidates will be of help and interest not only to
those of you who collect pins other than Just presidential, but to those who have stacks
of cigar boxes of unknowns • We shall try to present one complete record of either
gubernatorial or senatorial candidates per Keynoter and, if possible, add a list of
something like mayors of Chicago, etc* I know there are many members who are compiling
their own lists of local candidates. Would you please share them with your fellow
collectors? I have very nearly complete records of governors and senators but could
surely use any help' on primaries* Perhaps you who live in or near state capitals could
just run over there, spend a whole week that you have nothing else to do and compile us
a complete list of candidates from 1890 on to the present (and don*t forget to also jot
down all the primary candidates! )
If I can help anyone about particular items or strange candidates, please don f t hesitate
to write* Do include a stamped envelope as it does make answering alot easier. I also
would add that there is a booklet listing all gubernatorial candidates from 1890 through
1972 for the major parties in all states* A companion one for U. S. Sana tors from 1912
to the present will be printed soon. I f ll be able to tell that date soon. And one more
thing ... would you like to have these lists now started in the Keynoter illustrated?
Drop me a line for information, advice and, of course, any offer of assistance.

Vice President Vignettes
Continuing a series of vignettes on the vice presidents of
the United States, with art by Toluca Lake resident Murray
Harris, and biographical sketches by his wife, Bea.
ELBRIDGE GERRY— (V-P #5) born in Massachusetts
(1744-1814), was President Madison's second running
mate. He died in office, as did Clinton Madison 's first vice
Gerry opposed a strong national government and the
constitution. He refused to sign the Constitution — one
reason being the absence of a Bill of Rights. When the
amendments were being added to our Constitution, the
first ten became "The Bill of Rights. "
During a delegation 's discussions on whether to establish
the office of vice president, Elbridge Gerry was against
having this office, and opposed to this official being
president of the senate. Oddly, he was the only delegate to
become vice president. He was one of a committee of three
who took part in the XYZ scandal, an incident in Franco-
American diplomatic relations,
Gerry became governor of Massachusetts and served
two terms. During this time, he redistricted the state so as
to give his party's (Republican) state senators greater
voting strength. The opposing party (Federalist) upon
looking at the map with its new voting districts, noted that
one county (Essex) looked like a salamander and a witty
statesman volunteered to call it "Gerrymander." To this
day, when voting areas are changed, it is called
Gerry was glad when he heard the news of the War of
1812 and declared that the country had been at peace too
long and was becoming a "mere nation of traders. "He was
fleeted vice president and held that office from March 4,
181 3 to November 23, 1814, when he died in his carriage on
his way to the senate. Elbridge Gerry did nothing of note
duing his vice presidency.
DANIEL D. TOMPKINS 6/21/1 774 tv 6/11/1825
Because of two successive deaths in the vice presidency,
it was decided to choose a young man for this office and
Daniel D. Tompkins was nominated. He seemed to be the
ideal man for James Monroe's running mate and served as
vice president both terms, 1817 to 1825. He had shown
good executive ability in peace and war and his politics was
always moderate and consistant.
Tompkins was governor of New York for nearly 10 years
and during that time had many liberal reform measures
passed in the interest of the common people. He worked
for improvement in educational facilities, a reformed penal
code, the abolition of slavery and many others.
During the war of 1812, many jobs fell to Tompkins that
should have been taken care of by officers of the U.S.
Army and others. A post-war investigation put Vice
President Tompkins under a cloud as he had failed to keep
accurate records of his money transactions and New York
and the federal government claimed he was heavily in debt
to them. His integrity was unquestioned, but Tompkins
spent more time trying to clear his name than working at
the job of being vice president.
In spite of the lack of work during his first term, he was
re-elected as Vice President, but spent even less time at his
post. Charges against him were eventually dropped by New
York and the government withheld one year of his 'salary
($5,000). Later President Monroe authorized Congress to
pay Tompkins $95,000 for personal losses he incurred
while in public service.
The question of his personal accounts having been
dragged through politics, made him a man broken in health
and spirit. During the last two years of his term, Tompkins
spent most of the time at his Staten Island home, where he
had the peace and quiet that he wanted. Daniel Tompkins
died three months after his term of office expired.
APIC KEYNOTER - Page 22 - WINTER 1973
JOHN C. CALHOUN (1782-1850)
JOHN C. CALHOUN, born in South Carolina, in 1782,
was Vice President under Presidents John Quincy Adams
(1825-29) and Andrew Jackson (1829-32).
While in Congress, Calhoun was considered a war hawk.
In 1812, he recommended a declaration of war against
Great Britain and became quite famous for that act. Later,
he was appointed Secretary of War (on President Monroe's
cabinet). During his seven years in that office, he did much
reforming and reorganizing for the country.
In 1824, when John Q. Adams and General Andrew
Jackson were campaigning for the Presidency, Calhoun
spoke in agreement with Adams on the east coast and
Jackson on the west frontier. He felt sure that either
Adams or Jackson would be elected to be President,
although there were several running for that office. As we
know, John Calhoun served as Vice President under both
During his first term in office, Calhoun, as Senate
President, allowed much oratory against the ad-
ministration since he could feel the swing toward Jackson.
In the election of 1828, General Jackson chose John
Calhoun to be his running mate, but the Vice Presidency
under Jackson proved to be very unpleasant. He went
against the President's wishes many times and the Senators
who were pro- Adams gave him a hard time.
Calhoun had been an ardent Nationalist, but because of
certain tariffs and growing anti-slavery, in the south, he
became the champion of states' rights. He and the
President had some fiery sessions regarding states' rights,
as Jackson was almost fanatically against this. Finally, in
1832, John Calhoun broke with the President and resigned
from office. He is the only Vice President to have resigned
from that post.
Calhoun fought hard for the cause of Southern states'
rights until he died in 1850.

MARTIN VAN BUREN
. . .1772 to 1862
Martin Van Buren was Vice
President to President Andrew
Jackson, 1833 - 1837. He was
the eighth vice president and
eighth President of the U.S.
Van Buren became N.Y.
State Senator, Attorney
General of N.Y., U.S. Senator,
Governor of N.Y. and then
appointed Secretary of State to
President Jackson's Cabinet.
He was an early member of
Tammany and in complete
control of New York state
politics; a great advantage as
N.Y. had one-seventh of the
population of the U.S. He was
very influential in the election
of Jackson to the Presidency in
1829, by delivering the support
of the N.Y. powerful machine.
As Secretary of State, Van
Buren was able to reach a
settlement with Great Britain
on West Indian trade; per-
suade the French to pay
American damage claims from
the Napoleonic wars and
successfully negotiate with
Turkey for America's access to
the Black Sea.
Van Buren was called Little
Van because he was only five
feet six inches tall. Because of
his political manipulations, he
was called Red Fox (he had red
hair) and The Magician.
During a political campaign,
he was called Old Kinderhook
(he was born in Kinderhook,
N.Y.) and it is said that the
initials of this nickname gave
birth to the expression "O.K."
In the election of 1832,
Jackson, running for his
second term, named Martin
Van Buren as his running
mate. As Vice President, Van
Buren became the President's
very close adviser and con-
fidant. It was Van Buren's
intuitive understanding of
public opinion and of the
Congress that turned Jackson's
great popularity into an in-
strument of power. It was a
wild and cruel political era and
Van Buren found it necessary
to keep two pistols hidden
beneath his jacket.
Van Buren was known to be
one of the gentlest and amiable
men of his time. He was honest,
witty, friendly and preached
that political enemies could be
friends in private lfe. Martin
Van Buren was the last Vice
President to be directly elected
to the Presidency.

HOW WILL ROGERS RAN FOR PRESIDENT IN 1928
by Jane Ford Adams, APIC #21
On May 31, 1928, Life (still the humor magazine which came before the illustrated
news weekly of that name) announced that it was sponsoring the Anti-Bunk party with Will
Rogers as candidate for president. Rogers' portrait was on the cover, his acceptance
All during the summer and until after election the first pages of Life carried
short political pieces under Rogers' byline and "Anti-Bunk Bulletins." Part of the copy
actually came from the "candidate" himself; part originated in the editor's office. All
was witty and pungent. A New York radio station gave the party free time weekly.
Guests campaigning for Rogers on the air included Amelia Earhart and Eddie Cantor.
"If elected I absolutely and positively agree to resign," was Rogers' promise.
"That's offering the Country more than any Candidate ever offered it in the history of
its entire existence," he added. The single plank in the platform was "Whatever the
other fellow won't do, we will" and "no matter what's on our Platform, on November the
fifth we will have a bonfire and burn it."
A small 5x9" poster, plus thousands of Rogers buttons were distributed. One var-
iety had his picture and the slogan "He chews to run" parodying Collidge's "I do not
choose to run." Other buttons with his picture were captioned "I vote for Will Rogers."
He had received a few votes at the 1924 Democratic Convention and some write-in
votes at the polls then, as well as in 1928.

The APIC extends a formal welcome to the following chapters which have been approved by its
regional vice-presidents so far this year: Mid -Atlantic, Florida, Gulf -Texas, Montana, and
Iowa. Not all of these chapters have held their first meeting, but those which have are off
to a good start.
It is hoped that the information presented in this column will encourage attendance at
Chapter Meetings and will result in the dissemination of programs and policies which might
be of interest to chapters other than the one which reported them. In order to make this
column more useful, it would be appreciated if Chapter Secretaries or Chairmen would:
1. Add my name to your mailing lists; please send meeting announcements and
reports of chapter actvities after each meeting.
2. Establish meeting dates as far in advance as possible to make the calendar
of events useful in notifying new or travelling APIC members of meeting dates.
3. Advise me at once of any planned regional meeting so that we do not schedule
such meetings too close together.

Thus far I have been in contact with 19 chapters and 2 groups which are on their way to
becoming chapters. A report on each of these 21 groups is included below. If I have
missed any chapters, I would appreciate a letter from the President or Secretary of the
APIC KEYNOTER - Page 27 - WINTER 1973
A poll of the 19 chapters shows that there are a variety of methods used to finance the
activities of the club. The most common method is an annual dues charge, but there are
several other methods:
The annual dues charged ranges from 50c to $3.00; the most common dues figure is $2.00
per year. Two chapters report a special, lower dues for student members. The chapters
which use meeting registration fees all charge $1.00 per meeting. The most interesting
method is used by the chapter which obtains 100% of the proceeds from an auction of items
donated to the club by members. A number of chapters supplement their income through
charges for dealer tables, commissions from acution, and the net income from regional
The next chapter meeting will be on Sunday, January 27th. There were more than 60 persons
in attendance at the quarterly meeting held on September 30th. The chapter voted to use
part of its treasury to purchase a copy of the new book, Presidential Campaign Items
1789-1892 , for each of its 63 members. The club found that California Political Items Co.,
Political Collector Publications, and Professor Dale Wagner were willing to offer discounts
on quantity purchases. Other chapters may wish to explore this possibility. The chapter T s
former President, Nelson Chubb was appointed to meet with the Illinois Bicentennial
Commission to determine the possibility of the chapter T s providing an exhibit for use during
the bicentennial celebration. Chapter officers are Leroy Blommaert, President, Bob Rouse,
Vice President, Geary Vlk, Corresponding Secretary, and Dave Castaldi, Financial Secretary.
At the chapter T s meeting Saturday, December 8th at the home of Lois Rathbone, Denver, Earl
Dodge, National Secretary of the Prohibition Party, will speak on the Prohibition Party.
The chapter meets 4 times a year and usually has 15-20 members in attendance. Chapter
officers are Pearl Alperstein, Chairman; Milt Clements, Vice-President; and Charlotte
J. Doyle DeWitt — Connecticut
The next meeting will be held January 26th and members are encouraged to bring an exhibit
on their favorite candidate. At the October 6th meeting, Frank Corbeil led a discussion
on collecting ethics and Ed Gumprecht conducted a quiz on little, known facts about presi-
dents. Chapter officers are Ed Gumprecht, President; Bill Prescott, Secretary; Richard
Maxon, Treasurer; and Gertrude Adkins and Harry Mazadoorian, Directors. The big Annual
Regional Meeting will be held this year at the usual spot, - the Holiday Inn, Meriden,
Connecticut on May 3 and 4. Plan to be with us.
Empire (Upper New York State)
Agnes Gay, Secretary, reports that the chapter is contemplating a 2 day meeting next spring.
At the October 6th meeting in Auburn a short talk was given on Harriet Tubman and her work
in connection with the Abolitionist movement. The talk was given by the curator of the
Tubman House in Auburn. New officers were elected: Willard Smith; President, Kenneth Eaton
Vice-President; Agnes Gay, Secretary; and Howard Thomas, Treasurer.
The newly approved chapter T s third meeting was held on November 10th at the University of
South Florida in Tampa with 10-15 persons present. A spring meeting is planned for Miami.
The club is discussing the possibility of forming a collection of Florida state and local
items which it hopes can be housed in the state library or statehouse. Chapter officers

The December 7th meeting will be Tom Eagleton night, and all are aksed to bring their
Eagleton displays. Chapter meetings are held on the first Fridays of February, May,
l \=>_~ September, and December. Club officers are Leonard Hyman, President; Bob Levine, Secre-
tary-Treasurer; George McGrath, Vice President; and Stephen Briggs, Sergeant at Arms.
The new Gulf -Texas chapter held its first meeting in September with 16 members present.
A January meeting is planned and the club hopes to host a regional meeting in late spring.
The chapter does not yet have officers, but Norm Loewenstern and Eileen Elfant have been
The recently approved Iowa chapter has not yet held its first meeting because of organizer
Mike Treinen's recent move. Mike's new address is 641 48th St., Des Moines, Iowa 50312
Lewis and Clark (Oregon)
The chapter holds quarterly meetings. There are usually 10-15 members in attendance. Club
officers are Steve Bibler, President; Steve O'Harra, Treasurer; John Stewart, Secretary;
and Vic Miller, Alternate Secretary.
Metropolitan New York
Approximately thirty attended the October 4th meeting. Leon Weisel spoke on the collecting
of political glassware. One of Leon's main points was that while there are some very rare
glass pieces, political glassware is extremely interesting and available at reasonable
prices. The chapter does not have officers, but Ed Potter serves as program chairman.
Chapter meetings are scheduled for December 6th and 7th.
The Great Lakes Region Meeting, sponsored by the chapter, was held on November 16-17, 1973
in Lansing, Michigan. The successful meeting, which included a luncheon, brought together
50 collectors (36 from Michigan, 6 from Indiana, 4 from Illinois, and 4 from Ohio). Un-
fortunately chapter President, Ed Puis, missed the meeting because of illness. Jerry Roe
reports that the chapter plans to establish liaison with the Michigan Bicentennial Com-
mission with the goal of providing political exhibits. The next chapter meeting is tenta-
tively planned for March in the Detroit area. Chapter officers are Ed Puis, President,
Herb Sayre, Vice President; and Jerry Roe, Secretary-Treasurer.
On September 15, 1973, the chapter met at the Holiday Inn in Bordentown, New Jersey, (Not
Pennsylvania as previously listed) . The fine gathering included APICers from as far away
as Virginia and up-state New York. Two vigorous bourse sessions, a lively auction, and
a bonanza raffle were held. Ed Stahl won first prize and Ray Huber's son won second prize.
Next year's first two meetings will be held at the Holiday Inn in Bordentown on January 19th
and March 23rd. Chapter officers are Gary Lundquist, President; Jeannine Coup, Secretary-
Treasurer; and Ed Stahl, Vice-President and Meeting Chairman.
A Montana chapter has recently been approved, but there is no word as to whether the group
has held its first meeting. For those who are interested, Duayne Roe is the man to contact.
The Washington, D. C. chapter selected its new name at its October 21st meeting, with 40
persons in attendance. The chapter was formerly called the Mid-Atlantic Chapter but lost
the name to another recently approved APIC group. In a joking aside to our national pres-
ident, Larry Krug, Bob Fratkin reports that before the chapter chose its new name it voted
APIC KEYNOTER - Page 29 - WINTER 1973
unanimously against calling itself the Greater Illinois Chapter. The recent meeting also
featured a display of 1948 items, an educational meeting in which newer collectors asked
questions, and an auction of items donated by members to aid in the financing of the club.
New officers were elected: Bob Fratkin, Chairman; Gary Hong, Treasurer; and Charles Siegel,
The next chapter meeting will be held on December 2, 1973, at Stanford University. The
chapter* s officers are John Larsen, President; Rex Stark, Vice-President; and Bill
A meeting is planned for spring, although the date has not yet been selected. Al Anderson
reports that Ohio is interested in establishing a chapter consisting of APIC members from
Indiana, and Ohio. Chapter officers are Al Anderson, President and Wayne Hardman, Vice-
President, Secretary and Treasurer.
Because it is hosting the national convention next August, the chapter will hold only one
meeting between now and then. The meeting is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, March 3rd,
in the Westchester section of Los Angeles. A large meeting (120 persons in attendance!)
was held in San Diego on October 14th. Planning for the National Convention was the main
topic of business, but the swap session was also quite gratifying. One chapter member re-
ported picking up 2 Grant ferrotypes and a Cleveland mechanical chair at the meeting. If
this is the kind of material which we can look forward to next August, attendance from East
of the Rockies should be quite high at the National Convention.
The Texas chapter meets once a year. Chapter officers are Louis Buck, President, and John
B. Sheppard, Secretary.
The chapter holds semi-annual meetings on the first Sundays of April and October. The
meeting planned for April 7, 1974, will be held in Horicon, Wise.
In addition to these 19 active chapters, two additional are on the way to becoming chapters.
A new England group, which has met 3 times in the Boston Area, has decided to call itself the
Minute Man Chapter. Its most recent meeting was held on October 13th and featured films
on the 1960 campaign and JFK's 1000 days which were borrowed from the Kennedy Library. The
next Minute Man meeting is tentatively scheduled for January according to the group's or-
ganizer, Ben Corning. A South-Eastern group serving APIC members in Georgia, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi plans to hold an organization meeting
in the Atlanta area on either January 19th or 20th. The prospective chapter's organizer,
Vern Houston, has sent out 75 letters to political collectors in these states. Good luck!
